Reflecting on 10 years since Julia Gillard became Prime Minister, we look at the leadership shown by females in the Australian Foyers.
Working and learning in a wide variety of industries, here’s a few examples of the strong leadership within the Australian Youth Foyers:
Rikiesha is completing a traineeship with the Attorney General’s Office and recently obtained her provisional license, giving her the freedom and skills driving a car provides.
Lilly has been accepted into an International Relations University Degree and is thriving in the learning environment.
Mariam has finished her Community Services and now in pathology course at Go Tafe.
Zaira has completed her Certificate III in Individual Support (Aged Care). Now employed in the industry she is using money saved to pay for driving lessons in order to gain required logbook hours. Continuing to grow, she has recently enrolled in a Bachelor of Social Work.
Jacki got scholarship at the international recognised brand MAC and is pursuing her dreams in makeup artistry.
Sarah has secured a paid internship in community services, and is now considering what sector she wants to work in.
Ruby has recently transitioned out of the Foyer into her own rental in Shepparton, keeping in regular touch as an alumni for our Foyer Program.
Rachele has recently gained her P’s and has been successful in gaining a Hair Dressing apprenticeship which she can now kick off again with as the COVID restrictions are easing.
We are constantly impressed by the strength, growth and initiative shown by the young people in Australian Foyers.
